B. Learning through Play is supported by experts in Early Childhood Education and development.
Across the globe, Experts recognize that play and academic work are not distinct categories for young children. Creating, doing and learning are inextricably linked. When Children are engaged in purposeful play, they are discovering, creating, improvising and expanding their learning. Viewing children as active participants in their own development and learning allows educators to move beyond preconceived expectations about what children should be learning and focuses on what they are learning.
C. Learning through play is supported by Children and parents.
It is their natural response to the environment around them, when children are manipulating objects, acting out roles or experimenting with different materials they are engaged in learning through play. Play allows them to actively construct, challenge and expand their own understanding through making connection to prior experience thereby opening the door to new learning. Intentional play Based learning enables children to investigate, ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking. Play is responsive to each child's unique learning style and capitalizes on his or her innate curiosity and creativity. Play based Learning supports growth in language and culture of children and their families.
When Children are playing children are learning, Intentional teaching is opposite of teaching by rote method. Intentional Teaching involves educators being deliberate and purposeful in creating play based learning environments because when children are playing children are learning.
Play Lies at the core of innovation and creativity. It provides opportunities for learning in a context in which children are at their most receptive. In Play, children represent and transfer the world around them, providing other children and adults with a window into their thoughts and perceptions and often helping adults to see the world in new ways. Play expands intelligence, stimulates the imagination, encourages creativity, problem solving and helps develop confidence, self esteem and appositive attitude towards learning.
